PREPARATIONS: Injection: 250 mg/ml

STORAGE: Testosterone undecanoate is stored between 15 C to 30 C (59 F to 86 F), in original cartons until use.

DOSING: Males over 18 years of age: The recommended dose of testosterone undecanoate is 750 mg (3 ml) intramuscularly; followed by 750 mg (3 ml) intramuscularly after 4 weeks, then 750 mg (3 ml) intramuscularly every 10 weeks thereafter.

Safe and effective use of testosterone undecanoate is not determined for males under 18 years of age.

DRUG INTERACTIONS: Testosterone should be used cautiously with warfarin (Coumadin) because testosterone can reduce breakdown of warfarin, leading to increased warfarin blood levels and bleeding risk.

Testosterone can decrease in blood glucose, therefore insulin requirements may change in diabetic patients.

PREGNANCY: Testosterone undecanoate is not recommended for pregnant women or in women who may become pregnant. Testosterone undecanoate causes fetal harm; therefore, it must be avoided.

NURSING MOTHERS: Although it is not known whether testosterone undecanoate enters breast milk, it is not recommended for nursing mothers due to high risks of infant harm and serious adverse events.
